Well it’s been a while since we posted on here.
We have been very busy designing new ranges, designing a fabulous new website and exhibiting at all the major trade shows as well as retail shows around the country. If you follow us on facebook then you would know this already!
I’m sure we all have wonderful memories of the amazing events that took place in the UK in 2012.
The Diamond Jubilee although such a shame it was a very wet day for the Queens River Pageant we did love the way all families and communities came together to celebrate the occasion with street party’s, flying the flag, bunting, tea and cake were essential. Everyone was in such good spirits – it was a real excuse to have a party and forget about the current economic climate for a while.
Here’s a vintage photo of a street party in London 1953 for the Queen’s Coronation. So cute!
Of course the other major events of the year were the Olympics and the Paralympics. Danny Boyle’s amazing opening ceremony – I think it blew us all away and exceeded all of our expectations. It is truly difficult to think of our ‘best bits’ because we loved it all and there was so much to see but the Mary Poppin’s part and of course James Bond and the Queen in the helicopter were definitely some of our best highlights! Loved Stella McCartney’s designs for the girls introducing each country and indeed Team GB’s kit. We were all transfixed from that point on watching some sports we had never watched before and cheering for Team GB from our armchairs on a daily basis! An immense sense of pride to be British! Once the Olympics were over we all felt slightly deflated until we realised we still had the Paralympics to look forward to!
Watching the Paralympic athletes and listening to their courageous stories was just remarkable. We watched in awe as these amazing people inspired a nation!
Then of course was the wonderful news towards the end of the year of Prince William and the Duchess or Cambridge expecting their first child in 2013!
There were certainly a number of major events in the UK in 2012, lets see what 2013 has in store.
So here’s to a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year to you!
We look forward to updating you with all of our news, our inspirations and designs for the coming year.
